I am regularly asked to summarize my many posts. I thought it would be a good idea to publish on this blog, every Monday, some of the most relevant articles that I have already shared with you on my social networks. Today I will share some of the most relevant articles about Artificial Intelligence and in what form you can find it in today’s life. I will also comment on the articles.

Can artificial intelligence help scientists spot gravitational waves? Scientists hunting for elusive gravitational waves across the universe may be able to supercharge their discoveries with a new tool: artificial intelligence. Gravitational waves are ripples in spacetime, created when a massive object is accelerated or disturbed, such as when a black hole and a neutron star collide. Theorized by Albert Einstein, their existence was confirmed in 2015 with the first gravitational wave discovery by researchers using LIGO (the advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory). Now, just six years later, there have been at least 50 gravitational wave events detected. However, while scientists continue to detect gravitational waves, some think that, by using artificial intelligence (AI), researchers could spot these signals much faster and, therefore, more often. In a new study, researchers show how this could be possible using supercomputing and AI technology.

How Artificial Intelligence Is Fighting Wildfires. A lab at the University of California, San Diego, uses data to figure out how fires will burn, and how to help prevent them. A product known as BurnPro 3D showed, as the name suggests, three-dimensional images of vegetation down to a one-meter resolution. That can help fire managers prioritize where they should intentionally light fires when it’s safe to do so, because they can see where fuels have built up to dangerous levels.

Opening Up the Email Marketing Engine to Artificial Intelligence. With an average open email rate of 18.0% in 2020, it’s not like marketing teams are crushing this email thing. Wait, isn’t 18% pretty good? We get that standards are low here, for sure. Bottom-line? Email remains a priority. About four billion people have an inbox. It’s a tough sell to abandon that marketing strategy. But working through the sludge of open rates, send times, tone, content, links and the looming unsubscribe monster remains an absolute grind for marketers. Some say artificial intelligence (AI) can help. In fact, it’s become one of the early go-to use cases for AI in marketing, according to Paul Roetzer, CEO and founder of the Marketing Artificial Intelligence Institute.

Anthony Bourdain Doc Recreates His Voice Using Artificial Intelligence and 10-Plus Hours of Audio. “Roadrunner,” the Anthony Bourdain documentary from “20 Feet from Stardom” Oscar winner Morgan Neville, takes a page from documentaries like Alex Gibney’s “Sinatra: All or Nothing at All” in allowing the late chef and television personality to narrate his own story through the use of archival audio. Neville and his team culled through over a dozen hours of audio from Bourdain’s film, TV, audiobook, radio, and podcast appearances. But there are three instances in “Roadrunner” where Neville needed Bourdain narration that did not exist, so he turned to an artificial intelligence system that could recreate Bourdain’s voice.

The Future Of Artificial General Intelligence. With the latest advancements in artificial intelligence (AI), achieving human-like intelligence is gradually transitioning to the realm of possibility. And with disruptors like the Covid-19 pandemic ravaging the global economy, the race to achieve artificial general intelligence may have sped up significantly.

AI2 spinout MajorBoost uses artificial intelligence to help medical providers deal with insurance calls. A new health-tech spinout from Seattle’s Allen Institute for AI (AI2) aims to reimagine how doctor’s offices and insurance companies communicate with each other, using artificial intelligence to deal with time-consuming phone calls. MajorBoost was founded by three tech veterans, including CEO Lekshmi Venu, who has been an entrepreneur in residence at AI2 since January 2020. Venu previously spent six years at Amazon, where she led machine learning for Amazon Payments. She helped start MajorBoost last September.

When Artificial Intelligence Comes to Control. Applications of machine learning and other forms of artificial intelligence have been recognized in robotics and analytics. Now the technology is adding some spice to basic control applications. Using your noodle to think things through tends to make things go much more smoothly—even if you’re just a high-speed food packaging machine wrapping instant noodles. That’s an important lesson gained from machine learning technology used by systems integrator Tianjin FengYuLingKong of Tianjin, China. This form of artificial intelligence (AI) allowed the firm’s engineers to develop a multivariable inspection model for one of China’s largest producers of noodles. Relying on this model, the control system for the packaging lines can now deduce whether sachets containing spices and dried vegetables for flavoring were placed correctly on the precooked noodle blocks before each block is individually wrapped.
